Default Renaissance Cruise Line

Does anyone know what happened to the ships of this line, after the bankruptcy?

I visited one of these ships in Ashdod, Israel, on a port call, in either 2000 or early 2001.

It seemed to be fairly small.

Oceania has a couple of them and Princess has another that I know of. Not sure what happened to the rest but all were very nice ships and top of the line so they are sailing soewhere I am sure.

As Jim said Oceania has two that are currently sailing; Insignia and Regatta and Nautica will be shortly launched. Oceania is run by Frank Watters and Frank Del Rio, the former head of Renaissance. The ships are basically as they were with Renaissance. The two ships that Princess has are the Pacific Princess and the Tahitian Princess. They sail South Pacific itineraries.

The Renaissance ships were my wife's favorite and we look forward to sailing on Oceania to experience them again.

You can find out more about Oceania at:
Oceania Cruises

And Princess at

Princess Cruises

Take care,
Mike

Hi,
Renaissance I and II became Pacific Princess and Tahtian Princess.

Both fairly extensively '' refurbished '' ,specially the top two decks, upon
entering the Princess Fleet.
Pacific spent one season in Alaska, the went over to her name sake area
to join Tahitian.
She sails under '' P & O Australia " in winter months, and under Princess
proper the rest of the time.
Nice compact small/medium ships.

This question has made me even more curios so after doing some more research I think I have found where all of the old Renaissance ships now are. I won't guarantee 100% accuracy but I think it I'm close.

R One is now INSIGNIA (Oceania Cruises)
R Two is now Regatta (Oceania Cruises)
R Three is now Pacific Princess (Princess Cruises)
R Four is now Tahitian Princess (Princess Cruises)
R Five is now Nautica (Oceania Cruises)
R Six is now Blue Star (Pullmantur)
R Seven is now Delphin Renaissance (Delphin Seereisen)
R Eight is now MINERVA II (Swan Hellenic)


R3 and R4 were in Tahiti and Princess/P&O took them over at that time.

Take care,
Mike
